Chronic physical, chemical and emotional stress is the biggest contributor for developing serious conditions such as cardio-vascular diseases and cancer. Interestingly enough that those stressors are the same causes of postural dysfunctions, subluxation.
It is obvious to everyone that by observing posture we can very close estimate an individual health state. Think about it, how do you initially determine a person’s state just by looking at them? What denominator you are using? Their posture!
How do you know if person is angry? Their posture!
How do you know if person is tired? Their posture!
How do you know if person is upset? Their posture!
Frustrated? Their posture!
Sick? Their posture!
Stressed? Their posture!
Happy? Their posture!
Now you know why our parents and grandparents kept bugging us with the same statement “SIT STRAIGHT!” They never got tired saying it. Because they loved us and also because they knew, the better posture we have the more stress we can tolerate, we get less tired and ultimately we get healthier.
Now let’s have look at science. Windsor et. al. studied 50 randomly and causation of their death and relation to the spine and nervous system. The result was astonishing. Scientists discovered 139 diseased organs that killed those people and 138 had direct correlation with the spinal misalignment and nervous system in the spine. 99.5 % of those randomly chosen people had chronic condition and abnormal posture and spinal misalignment.
Since there is a very tight relationship between brain and the body, posture and spinal realignment is the key element to turn stress from causing the disease to cause healthy adaptation and healing.
